Heart of Barkness Launch …


July 3rd, 2019 Posted 8:33 am

… at Eight Cousins in Falmouth. No one threw anything, always the sign of a good event. Tonight: 7PM, Savoy Bookshop and Cafe, 10 Canal St., Westerly, Rhode Island. I’ll be reading the first scene – so you won’t have to!

As for preorder people who have not received the short story (Upper Story) – there are only a few, if I understand right. They should email Don’t worry – you will get it somehow – even if I have to read it to you over the phone!


Pub Date: Heart of Barkness!


July 2nd, 2019 Posted 7:39 am

Book launch is tonight 7 PM at Eight Cousins, 189 Main St., Falmouth Mass. Full tour schedule is at, click “events.”

And the first Amazon review was already up – before we were – from Kathleen G:

“5.0 out of 5 stars – A Treat – July 2, 2019.

I’d not read this series before so it took a minute for me to set my perspective to Chet’s. Chet’s a dog, which veteran readers of Quinn know but I didn’t. Quinn does a nice job, btw, of making it possible to hop in and know what’s what and who’s who so this is fine as a standalone. This time out, Chet and his human companion Bernie, a detective are poking around in the case of Lotty Pilgrim, a once well known country singer who has fallen on hard times and possibly murdered Clint, her companion and manager. They’re both convinced she didn’t do it (I liked Chet’s view of things here). As always in the genre, there are secrets, lies, and a twist that will make you nod … Fans of the series will love it and new readers have a treat ahead.”

Re Upper Story, the new Chet and Bernie short story that accompanies preorders – it will go out at noon ET today.

Admin: How was yesterday’s BOW WOW appearance at Eight Cousins Books?

Spence: Lots of kids, and none of them threw anything! Therefore: success! Not only that, but one of the kids, maybe ten years old, already knew lots about bull sharks.

Admin: Relevant since there’s a bull shark named Mr. Nice Guy in the story. Spoiler alert: he’s not nice. Did you bore the kids with tales of your spearfishing days in the Bahamas?

Spence: Boredom’s a big part of life. Gotta prepare them!



Today at 4!
